Nice sentiment.  However, as the censor of poetry would point out (except he didn't):

This may work in Portuguese, but in English (translation?) your Haiku scans as 4-6-5, instead of 5-7-5.

Yeah even here in London, although it's grey the temperature is still surprisingly high.  i think there is a saying in Greece, that a strong summer is always followed by a bitter winter, so we'll have to see.

Kisenosato
is hunting double digits
for the Y.D.C.

For Tochinoshin
Eight is enough to save rank,
but will he get them?

Mitakeumi
Never mind Ozeki Run,
get Kachikoshi!

The forum is calm

Wind sweeps over all the threads

Basho is over.

But wait, here's trouble:

Takanoiwa suing

Posted (edited)

The travelling circus
is packed up and leaving town.
"All aboard the bus!"

The jungyo's silence
of "Women on the dohyo"
or children banned

Regretted by some
and petitioned by many,
not a peep this time.

The Kyokai waits
for it all to blow over,
and mayors are mum:

No more rebellion
and wrongdoers are punished,
now back to business.

What business this is?
Look at Takanoiwa's bill
for a short setback...

Scandals are still here
awaiting their eruption
fueled by wanton greed

While we, the public,
just want to see good sumo
not this legal crap.

...The travelling circus
halts in another township
for another show.

Orandashoho is destined to someday write a 1500-haiku history of this time in Ozumo. 

My suggestion for a title: "The Dohyo of the Nibelungs."

I am fighting for the memory and respect of the limerick:

There was a rikishi from Brazil

Who liked to eat fish on a grill

When "A" would appear

His opponents would fear

And would fall on their faces at will.

Well, this will savor the memory, but destroy the respect ... Guess the rikishi:

 

There once was a man from Osaka,

Who’s too young to have wrestled with Waka.

Since he rose to Ozeki,

His O-zumo’s been shaky,

But he’s still there so stop with the Talk-a.
